OS X Technologies :: Run Multiple Copies Of Skype By Launching The .app File

May 8, 2012

I figured out how to run multiple copies of skype by launching the .app file from different osx user accounts in terminal.  What I'm trying to do now is script this or automate opening terminal and typing the line with automator.  The following is the line that I use. 

su user2 -c "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype && exit" 

And I just change user2 to user3 for a third instance of skype and so on. how ot automate this process?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Delete Skype Dmg File As It Says Skype Is In Use While It Is Not In Use?

Jun 14, 2010

On the right hand side of my desktop when I download a program it seems to put an icon or doc on the right hand side. Like right now I have a skype dmg file I can't delete as it says Skype is in use, then right above that is a seperate skype icon that even if I drag to dock it still stays on the right hand side (like a copy), then I downloaded open office again and it put the install icon there (like when you open and you drag your program to teh applications folder)

OS X :: Can't Print Multiple Copies In Leopard 10.5

Nov 20, 2007

I can't seem to be able to print multiple copies of a document in Leopard. I've tried 3 different network printers (2 windows printers, 1 direct IP printer) using 3 different MacBooks. All running 10.5.1. It'll print 1 copy just fine, but that's it. If you want multiple copies you have to keep sending it to the printer, which is a pain.

Can anybody try printing 2 or more copies with a local printer and see if that works? I think I may have found my first truly annoying Leopard bug

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Downloading Multiple Copies?

May 27, 2012

I have noticed that when Mail is downloading my new email, and I look at the "Mail Activity" box in the lower right corner of the application, it seems to be downloading double the mail I am seeing.  For instance, if I see 6 new emails, there will be a blue bar and the message "downloading X of 12 messages" as they come in. It doesn't seem to happen with my Mobileme account, just with my IMAP account from GoDaddy. Only the correct number of messages appear visible in my Inbox. I deal with large files on a regular basis, I really don't want my storage to double, and it just seems like something is wrong that should be fixed.

Feb 25, 2012

Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.

Applications :: Gmail - Multiple Copies Of The Sent Email In Trash

Sep 16, 2009

I have gmail set up on my mac & iphone as IMAP. Works great, except for a weird deal whenever I send mail. After the email has been sent, if I go to trash, I'll find multiple copies of the sent email sitting there. I.E.- today I sent a single email(not a reply), and there were 16, yes 16 copies of that sent email in my trash. There was only one copy in the sent mail folder. It's a pain deleting all this stuff.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apple Mail Sending Multiple Copies Of Email

Apr 11, 2012

Recently, my Apple Mail has been sending from two to six copies of email, timed to the same minute. I've taken to using Thunderbied (which I don't prefer) to avoid it. My theory is that if I can reload Lion it might cure it, but since Lion only comes as a download, I don't know how.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Epson Laser Prints Low On Multiple Pages / Copies

Mar 12, 2012

I have an Epson AcuLaser C2600 which I got some years ago and which has run fine on 10.3, 10.4 and until recently on 10.6. It has suddenly started printing second and later copies of a single page document about 3cm lower on the page than it should. It does the same on pages after the first page in multi-page documents. This does not always happen but does for much or even most of the time. This happens in various applications. Sometimes the printer shows a 'Check paper size' warning but does not stop.

Discussions with Epson have led to checking Print and Fax preferences, Page Set Up, Extended Printer Settings (all of which I'd done) and making some changes to the printer control panel connected to Paper Size and Auto Continue. The problem remains and discussions continue. It is worth commenting that something like this seems to have been an Epson issue for some time but the suggested solutions have not worked for me.

I have stuck on 10.6.7 because there seemed to be a number of printer issues with 10.6.8 and as everything was fine (and I like a quiet life).I have made no OS updates so it is hard to understand why this has suddenly started (unless it is a hardware issue). I recently installed Pages 4.1, the only other changes have been things like updating browsers (and adding a couple of extensions) and other applications.

OS X Technologies :: Running Multiple Folder Actions At Same Time

May 29, 2012

Does anyone have some experience running multiple folder actions at the same time?I've written a Applescript folder action that processes some files. When adding some files, the script starts and all goes well. The processing of each file takes a few minutes, but all files are processed correctly.However, when adding some new files to the dropfolder, while the folder action is all ready processing other files dropped a few minutes earlier, the process that is all ready running immediately aborts and the folder action is relaunched on the new files, leaving the old files for what they are.The same problem occurs with multiple folders, each having a folder action attached. When dropping files in "Folder A", the script starts processing. But if someone droppes files in "Folder B", The script of folder A aborts, and the script of folder B starts processing. When adding more files to the folders, the result is the same. In some casses, when the last dropped files are processed, the os continues where the operation was aborted on the previous files. But this not always happens. To make things worse, when you remove the items from the folders afterwords, the folder actions starts running again on items no longer present in the folder ..Does anyone know how I can prevent the folder action being aborted when new files are dropped and placing the new files in "Hold", until the previous files are processed? How can I prevent a folder action being aborted when a item is dropped into another folder?I've written a small script to test this behaviour. Just create one or more folders and attach the script below. Drop a item into the folder, wait a few seconds and drop another one in the same or another folder. To monitor what happens please check the console. [code]

OS X Technologies :: Create A Log File?

Apr 24, 2012

Been up for a while trying to figure this out with no luck. I created an app that will uninstall a program and all of it's files. 

example try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp2"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp.plist"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp2.plist" end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/FakeTestApp*"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/FakeTestApp" end try 

there are alot more paths to remove but this is just a few for example 

I want to be able to create a log.txt file on the desktop to show what has been removed and or what could not be removed. 

I then tried by creating a text document by using 

do shell script "touch ~/Desktop/test.txt" tell application "Finder" open file ((path to desktop folder as text) & "test.txt") using ((path to applications folder as text) & "TextEdit.app")end tell 

but I don't know what to do next. 

1. Have it check for each file to see if it was deleted or not

2. add it into the test.txt file

3. save the file once done

OS X Technologies :: Folder Action Does Not Run On SECOND File Only

Mar 7, 2012

Does any one know of a bug or a log for folder scripts that do not run? I am trying to get a basic folder script (to replace %20 in the file name) of the Downloads folder.

When downloading multiple files (two or more) it runs only on the first file, successfully without error, and then never runs on the second file. If I move both of the files out of the Downloads folder and move it back it, the one file that does not get the folder action now does and everything is peachy.So it is not that the folder action is not scripted properly. It is just that the folder does not catch the second file download - guess maybe too fast? Has any one seen this or have this bug?
